Watch Dogs isn’t yet out, but were a sequel to be made, it wouldn’t take as long to create as the first game, creative director Jonathan Morin has said.
“Right now there is no such thing as a Watch Dogs 2,” said Morin in an interview with Eurogamer. “It’s certainly not going to be the same amount of time if we ever embark on such a journey,” he went on. “A big part of it was defining whatever Watch Dogs is. Once you have that starting point, then what becomes interesting is what players want more of – what comes next?”
The interview follows the release of a nine-minute video detailing the game’s multiplayer systems.
“Especially with the delay we have just been really concentrating on getting it [the original Watch Dogs] launched. After that we’ll see where it goes – I think Ubisoft is showing more and more that they’re willing to take the time for it to be right.”
Morin is also talked about what he would like to see in the sequel, stating that he’d like to get more into the thematics of Watch Dogs — the hyperconnectivity and hacking in an entire city, for instance.
"There's stuff we discovered by making Watch Dogs that are interesting to pursue. But it's up to players. [And] for me right now – it's vacation."
Watch Dogs is out on May 27 for PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One.
